more concerned about the weapons. i think i saw some assault style rifles in there. >> reporter: they -- yes, you saw the assault weapons but ironically what they were most concerned about was this 50 gauge rifle they had. that was the one that military snipers use and they said that actually has more fire power and they were more concerned about that. but the assault rifles got a lot of attention. >> thank you, ann notarangelo. two of the bay area's busiest bart stations could be getting a multi-million dollar makeover. kpix 5 reporter phil matier shows us the plans to break up a bart bottleneck. >> reporter: bart is growing around the nine bay area counties but here in downtown san francisco is where they are really feeling the pinch. here's the story. for years, bart ridership has been growing to the point where now 400,000 riders daily use the commuting system and nowhere is that felt more strongly than at the embarcadero and montgomery
6:01 pm
street stations in san francisco. >> 40% of our trips each day either begin at embarcadero or montgomery. >> reporter: the biggest problem is getting the riders on and off the trains at rush hour without backing up the whole system. and that's why bart is laying tracks for this massive expansion with new underground platforms on both side of the trains complete with sliding glass doors. so that we would -- you would load on to this train from here and on that side as well? >> either that or you could -- everyone loads this way and exits the other way. it's much more fast and smooth. >> reporter: they would also add more escalators. >> we want to make them high speed. that's key, high speed escalators get people up and out quickly. >> reporter: in the meantime, you may see some things disappear, as well. >> look at this. there's not on a phone booth here. let's just get them out. these seats, eight feet wide. it's precious space. we can do something much more narrow and fit a lot more people. >> reporter: how crowded does it get down here? >> really crowded. i have to stand and sweat on the train every night. >> reporter: what do you think
6:02 pm
of the idea of adding another platform over there. >> i think that would be great. >> reporter: why? >> because you can get more ridership. >> reporter: but it's not going to come cheap. the cost, about $900 million. will this mean higher fares? >> it could mean higher fares, yeah. it might mean higher fares at that station, too. >> reporter: it's going to take a couple of years to get the funding because there's competition. let's not forget that bart also wants to go to san jose and expand elsewhere. it's going to be interesting, liz, in that they do start this, what they are going to do is tunnel it all underground just like the central subway and keep bart running and then at the very end break out those walls and have a whole new station. it ought to be something to see. >> absolutely. anything that's going to ease that commute every day, got to work. thank you. >> reporter: it's worth a shot. >> absolutely. thanks, phil. when you think of what causes bay area gridlock you think of accidents, there's construction of course, and weather. but now as kpix 5 reporter john

6:04 pm
people are paying a price far beyond the $2 million every year. >> reporter: this crew is replacing the old box with the metal topped one that can be welded shut. it's really just an effort to slow the thieves down. >> take about couple hours to cut the welding. >> reporter: you think it's going to work? >> so far it's worked. >> reporter: caltrans won't talk about the other strategies it's pursuing with law enforcement. but they are asking the public to report anyone working on the roadway who doesn't look legit. it's in everybody's interests, they say, because it's no secret who is going to pay for all this. in castro valley, john ramos, kpix 5. developing news out of concord. a 14-year-old was rushed to the hospital after being hit by a car this afternoon. it happened at the intersection of solano way and grant street about 1:30. the intersection is blocked off for the afternoon and early evening. it may be blocked off for another hour. the teenaged boy was in

6:09 pm
he has demonstrated that he has no issue with killing people, completely innocent people. and so if you see this individual, that is a 911 call if you see him. >> reporter: the $1 million reward is being offered to anyone who provides the information leading to his capture and conviction and that includes dorner's family. in fact, that message is going out to christopher dorner, as well. >> if mr. dorner would like to see a member of his family get a million dollars, he could make that happen, couldn't he? >> absolutely. the reward that is out there right now is for anybody who provides information that leads to the arrest and conviction of christopher dorner. if christopher's mom were to turn in her son today, we would be more than happy to facilitate that, then i'm quite certain that she would be entitled to that reward. you know, again, i don't say that i jest. we'll do whatever it takes to have him surrender. we would love for this end in a peaceful manner and then deal with this issue in the courts.

6:18 pm
on spending outdoors in february? compare that to how much time we have spent outdoors. we need the rain and we need the snow in the mountains but yet, you can just go outside and enjoy the sunshine, too, because it's there for the taking we have ourselves another clear night and chilly. in the mid-30s in san jose but look at the highs today. napa 68. february 11, are you kidding me?! oakland 68 degrees. richmond 65. san francisco 63 before a sea breeze kicked in. concord 63. livermore 61. no rainfall on the radar nor will there be for a while because the high pressure dome that gave us the sunny mild weather today is not moving. it is stuck off to our west. it might be a word you would use if you want the rainfall but you would be happy if you want sunshine to know the high pressure dome is going to get
6:19 pm
closer and have more influence. as the high passes closest to us on friday many of you in the south bay like san jose, los gatos, los altos may hit 70 on friday and everybody will be in the mid- to upper 60s for the back half of the week. so not as cold at night. we'll still be in the upper 30s but not near freezing by the end of the week. close to 70 degrees by friday and it's all about the sunshine. highs tomorrow pretty close to normal. low 60s is where we should be this time. year. it's why we live in northern california. 61 livermore. san rafael 61. mid-60s wednesday, thursday, friday the upper 60s with sunshine. onshore flow over the weekend will drop the temperatures back two or three degrees but i really don't see much of a pattern. what i'm looking at now is when is that high going to move and get a storm to give us some rainfall? right now the answer to that question is not over the next 10 days. i don't see it happening.

6:29 pm
church is faced with finding a replacement just before the holiest season. kpix 5 reporter len ramirez in santa clara with what bay area catholics would like to see in a new leader. len. >> reporter: well, they would obviously like to see some changes happen in the catholic church. the catholic church church is an old institution and the california missions are a symbol of the church's spread from europe to the new world more than 200 years ago. the church is spreading quickly in the third world. and so there's a lot of speculation around here that there might be a new pope from one of these regions, africa, asia or south america. reporter: at the vatican tonight preparations are being made to convene a meeting of the college of cardinals to elected -- to elect a new pope like the sudden and unusual retirement of pope benedict xvi, the selection of a new spiritual leader for the world's 1.2 billion catholics could offer some breaks with tradition. >> you have a number of cardinals now who are from africa, south america and asia. i think it would not be a shock if we had somebody from one of those places.

6:31 pm
new changes that people want. >> reporter: the san francisco -- a lot is being said about the timing of the announcement before the season of lent. the most important season on the calendar for catholics a season of renewal or rebirth. it's also believed that maybe this is the pope trying to say something trying to give a message to the cardinals as he passes the reins to another pope. >> ash wednesday coming up this week. thank you, len ramirez. a bad credit report could cost a loan or job and now we are learning 40 million americans have a mistake on their credit reports. kpix 5 consumerwatch reporter julie watts explains it may be nearly impossible to fix. >> my credit history is still reflecting a foreclosure. >> reporter: an erroneous
6:32 pm
foreclosure on a credit report resulted in four years of frustration for martha de jesus that eventually prevented her interest refinancing her mortgage. >> i was denied because i had foreclosure in my history. and i told him that my home was not foreclosed. >> reporter: she is not alone. according to the federal trade commission, one out of five consumers has an error on a credit report and a recent "60 minutes" investigation reveals it's nearly impossible to convince the credit agencies to fix them. >> the federal law says that if you believe that there is a mistake, they have an obligation to do a reasonable investigation. >> reporter: but ohio's attorney general says that's not happening. >> they are not doing a reasonable investigation. they are not doing an investigation at all. >> reporter: and "60 minutes" may have uncovered why. former credit reporting agency employees in places like india and the philippines admit to correspondent steve kroft they had no email, internet or any way to investigate consumer disputes. the attorney general has opened the investigation but in the meantime it's up to consumer to be pro-active.

6:34 pm
know that score. >> reporter: absolutely. it's not bad to pay for the report. you just don't want to accidentally sign up for recurring charges which happens on these sites. president obama getting ready to deliver his fourth state of the union address. the white house says tomorrow's speech will serve as a book end to the inaugural address. a sign the president will touch on priorities such as immigration reform and reducing gun violence but the main thrust of the speak will be on so-called pocketbook issues. >> the core emphasis that he has always placed in these big speeches remains the same and will remain the same, which is the need to make the economy work for the middle class because the middle class is the engine that drives this country forward. >> kpix 5 will air the president's state of the union address live tomorrow starting at 6 p.m. flocks of birds leaving behind health hazards. the tactic in one bay area

6:38 pm
>> started out of necessity for both denise and myself. we had regular corporate jobs. and they went out of state. >> reporter: so they started a new business helping chase off the geese, like dublin sports park. >> anywhere from 250 to 300 and that is dropping as we use the dog patrol. we are seeing less and less geese returning to the park. >> away, away! >> reporter: as soon as the geese spotted the car they took off in a hurry, so fast we could barely catch them on camera. the dogs chance and shelby had already been working that kylie took a year to train. this is amazing video shelby is walking this injured goose out of harm's way into safety. >> they are protected those birds by federal law. this is a technique that's allowed. it is a way to deter and harass them without physically harming them. >> reporter: for these two entrepreneurs things are looking up. their business started by chance is growing. >> we do a business complex out in walnut creek. we also have a golf course that we are going to be starting.

ju earlier in this newscast we showed you a skydiving accident in realtime. the terrifying moments all caught on the jumper's gopro video. it happened in a popular destination for bay area thrill seekers and world tourists. in part 2 of our exclusive kpix 5 report, an faa report sheds light on some aspects of the industry that you may not have ever considered. >> are you guys excited? >> yes. >> reporter: dozens of customers a week come to skydive monterey bay, a school that promises the highest jumps with panoramic views. after a 20-minute safety session, they are suited up and off they go. beginners jump in tandem with teachers for safety. but gerardo flores wishes he could warn them about what happened to him. >> the chute opened. >> reporter: last summer when he was taking his 30th jump at the school, his parachute
6:44 pm
opened prematurely and improperly sending him into a tailspin. >> so you're spinning, spinning into a final for 20 minutes and hit the ground. about 35 to 40 miles per hour. >> reporter: flores suffered head injuries and fractured ribs but what's really bothering him now is this: an faa report on his accident that found some of his rented gear was worn beyond serviceable limits. skydive monterey bay turned down our request for an interview but this industry expert told us -- >> my real problem was him wearing the video camera. >> it can be a distraction, usda recommends at least 100 skydives for a video camera. >> reporter: dr. craig stapleton has clocked more than 8,000 jumps as a member of the u.s. parachuting team. >> it's a dangerous sport. you're jumping out of an aircraft in flight and that's part of the thrill but that lures people to the sport. >> reporter: he says when you jump you take on the risk and liability and 99.99% of the time, according to the latest
6:45 pm
statistics, you will survive. but after reading through the faa's reports, stapleton admitted a worn-out main velcro flap on the parachute container is disturbing. >> it covers that area where the deployment system is situated. so it makes it easier for things to run into that pin to knock that pin that keeps the container closed. >> reporter: as for knots in the rigging ropes? >> another disturbing issue. >> reporter: who is checking the gear? an faa certified rigger who may also be an employee of the company. >> the faa doesn't have a parachute department. >> reporter: the agency can conduct random visits to the schools but -- >> essentially unless they bring a rigger to the drop zone and pull every rig off the shelf there is no way to inspect. >> reporter: he says it's self- regulation something he believes the industry does a good job with. that doesn't reassure flores. >> i put my trust -- i put my life on the line trusting the school. never again. >> skydive monterey bay says
6:46 pm

a tale of two seasons for the sharks. after 7 wins they are now winless in the last 5. todd mclellan might want to wait before giving him another one. the blue jackets 45 seconds into the game, columbus up 3-1 in the third and they blow it open with three goals in the final frame. sharks allow a season-high 6 goals. they fall to the blue jackets 6- 2. are you ready for this? the warriors had the day off but they still made national news unveiling their any ultimate jerseys the first-ever modern day short sleeves. warriors will wear them three times this season. that probably is enough beginning february 22nd against the spurs.
